Not to be outdone, Newsweek followed up with a mid-November 2009 cover of Palin showing her legs in some high-cut shorts. The shot was actually not taken by Newsweek, but instead bootlegged off a cover shoot Palin did for Runner’s World magazine.
This is a world-class news magazine. Why does it need to stoop to such lows to advance its agenda and tear down conservatives?
Try and think of one shot of President Obama on the cover of a magazine in an equally unflattering light. You can’t.
The Newsweek Romney cover is beyond the pale. Draw a parallel to our sitting president if you disagree.
Would anyone cry foul if Obama were running for president and Newsweek depicted him in the colorful Maasai tribal garb of his father’s African homeland, Kenya? You get the idea and the stereotype formed there. No one would dare accept such an overtly racist depiction. And yet Newsweek shamelessly bashes a man for his religious faith, and we’re expected to view that as all in good taste?
